The Chennai Open main draws will start on Tuesday, February 6, at the Sports Development Authority of Tamil Nadu Tennis Stadium in Chennai. The two-day qualification rounds finished on Monday, February 5.

SD Prajwal Dev stunned Ukraine's Vadym Ursu 6-3, 6-3 in the second qualification round. The Mysuru-born was the lone player among the 11 Indians in the qualification round to advance to the main draw.

Prajwal will face India's top-ranked player Sumit Nagal in the first round. Nagal is coming fresh off his Australian Open outing last month in Melbourne, where he scripted history by becoming the first Indian to beat a seeded player in the main draw since Ramesh Krishnan in 1989. Nagal got the better of Alexander Bublik in straight sets in the first round.

Ramkumar Ramanathan and Mukund Sasikumar earned wildcard entries for the Chennai Open main draw. Ramkumar guided India to a 4-0 win against arch-rivals Pakistan in the recently concluded Davis Cup tie, while Sasikumar finished as runners-up at the M25 Chennai (an ITF World Tennis Tour) last week.

Ramkumar is scheduled to play against Spain's Oriol Roca Batalla in the first round. Meanwhile, Sasikumar will face Poland's Maks Kasnikowski on Tuesday.
